Mage wins the 149th Kentucky Derby

Mage won the 149th Kentucky Derby. Two Phils was second, followed by favored Angel of Empire.

Mage was second in the Florida Derby to Forte, who scratched Saturday morning. Forte would have been the Kentucky Derby favorite.

In Kentucky, Mage was 15-1. He stalked a very fast pace, drew off from Two Phils to win the race. Angel of Empire made a nice late move but came up short. If he had won, you would have gotten free furniture.

But Mage got the jump and held on. Two Phils ran a big race to just hold second.
